Hello Firefox OS Enthusiasts. Just before the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, new information about the Firefox OS devices has been leaked. It looks like Alcatel will release their own Firefox OS based tablet, called Alcatel One Touch Fire S, which is just a concept and may not be released any time soon.
Despite the fact that the full hardware specs list is not available yet, we know that it uses a 7-inch qHD display with 540 x 960 resolution, an 1.2 GHz dual core CPU and two VGA cameras. More information to be announced.
It looks like Firefox OS is doing quite well. For now, we know for sure that 2014 will bring ZTE Open C and ZTE Open II, the next two Firefox OS based smartphones developed by the Chinese manufacturer, Geeksphone Revolution, and two new Firefox OS devices from Alcatel: the Alcatel One Touch POP smartphone and Alcatel One Touch Fire S.
For those who don’t know yet, Firefox OS is a new Linux based mobile operating system, built by using the new HTML5 technology by the Mozilla developers. For now, it is used as default on smartphones with modest hardware specs, developed by LG, ZTE, Alcatel and Geeksphone.
While Firefox OS has been experimentally ported to the Google Nexus 7 tablet. Also, the InFocus F1 tablet running Firefox OS has been spotted at FCC.
